Tired of the same old sounding bands in the local scene and pop punk sounding so mainstream we used our singers talent for rockabilly and his knack for sounding like Glen Danzig to form an old-school punk band.
*Jan 2001 Hawk, Fiend and Oblivion write first song based on a 50's karaoke of "Earth Angel" *Feb 2001 Fiend, Hawk and Oblivion ask Doom to take up the bass for them. HELVIS is formed and they teach themselves their first Misfits cover "138." They Also write first totally original song Mommy's A Whore. (A two-chord beauty!) *May 2001 HELVIS takes over their first open-mic show with a 10-song set. *May 2001 - Present HELVIS plays limited local shows, records two CD's and distributes limited edition T-Shirts and stickers locally. *The Future Look for a seven-song tribute to thrash titled, "Ass Gas or Thrash." Look for a new line-up to get the thrash across but don't worry the core will unite again and get back to the root of it later. Look for stickers and T-shirts on the bands official homepage as the Ass Gas or Thrash project comes together. HELVIS solely exists to provide free punk/thrash MP3s online for your listening pleasure. As life allows and members commit, HELVIS will continue to provide original, uncensored corporate-free good times punk music for those of you who care more about laughs than image and more about the quality of your lives than what you can obtain before your lives are spent. For those that know punk is an emotion and not a fashion LONG LIVE PUNK
